SUPPLEMENT TO THE 'EYANPAHA. ' 



MARCH, 1.0, 1900. 



THE HOLY YEAR. 



Here-in we give in English an ex- 
planation of the Holy Year, for 
which we have been asked several 
times; and for the benefit of the In- 
dians, the translation of same in the 
Sioux Language, is given on first 
page of '-Eyanpaha." 

Now that we are celebrating the 
year ef jubilee every Catholic should 
know what a jubilee is, and this is 
not only for his own sake, but for 
the sake of the many non-Catholics 
who are sure to ask him for informa- 
tion about such an unusual event, 
says the Catholic Times of London. 

A jubilee, otherwise called a jubi- 
lee year or holy year, is in the Ca- 
tholic church a time in which, in a 
specially solemn manner, a plenary 
indulgence is offered to the faithful. 
Jubilees are of two sorts. There is 
the ordinary jubilee, which occurs 
every twenty-fifth year and lasts 
twelve months, from Christmas to 
Christmas, and which, when it is 
comuletecl at Rome, is extended the 
following year during the whole or 
part of the twelve months, as the 
case may be, to the whole Catholic 
world. And there is the extraordi- 
nary jubilee, which for special rea- 
sons is offered by the Holy See and 
lasts for a longer or shorter time, 
availing for the whole church in spe- 
cial countries, or even, it may be, in 
special cities. 

The origin of jubilees seems to be 
lost in the obscurity of the past. 
Some say they arose from a belief, 
comino" down from ancient times 5 
that every hundred years, at the be- 
ginning of the new century, special- 
ly great indulgences were to be ob- 
tained by visiting the Holy City. 
This opinion was current in Rome, 
and so in 1300 not only many Ro- 
mans, but many foreigners, crowded 
the Church of St. Peter to gain these 
spiritual favors. Pope Boniface 
VII. examined the Papal archieves 
for information on the point, but in 
vain. However, the crowds increas- 
ed and the Holy Father, by his apos- 
tolic power, turned the, prevailing 
opinion into an accomplished fact. 
On Feb. 22 he solemnly promulgat- 
ed in St. Peter's for that and every 



following hundreth year the fullest 
possible indulgence for all those, 
who, after repentance for and con- 
fession of their sins, visited the 
churches of SS. Peter and Paul, if 
they lived in Rome, thirty seperate 
times, and fifteen times if they were 
Pilgrims from outside the city. A 
woundrous sight now showed itself. 
From all parts of Europe pilgrims 
thronged to Rome. The streets 
could hardly contain the multitudes 
moving hither and thither. 

Pope Clement V., while at Avig- 
non, received a legation from the 
Romans and at their request short- 
ened the jubilee period to every fif- 
tieth year. In a Bull dated Jan. 27, 
1349, he made this concession of 
orace from the infinite merits of Je- 
sus Christ, firstly, to gratify the Ro- 
mans, who in their own name and 
that of the whole church had request- 
ed it, so that the faith, hope, piety 
and charity of the Christian world 
mifht be exalted; and secondly, in 
memory of the Jewish jubilee every 
fiftieth year, of the descent of the 
Holy Ghost fifty days after our 
Lord's resurrection, but especially 
so that a greater numberof the faith- 
ful might gain the blessings of the 
jubilee. But he added one other 
church to be visited by the pilgrims; 
that of St. Joseph Lateran. And 
now in spite of the pest which was 
raging, of the extraordinary cold. 
of the badness of the roads a still 
greater number of pilgrims arrived 
in the Eternal City than on the oc- 
casion of the previous jubilee. Rome 
could not entertain the crowds, and 
we read that Germans and Hun- 
o-arians huddled too-ether in heaps 
before huge fires and passed the 
nights thus in the open air. The pil- 
grims nobly, amid all their trials 
and troubles, helped one another. 
There was no conflict; but it is rcord- 
ed that some brigands, who attempt- 
ed to rob them, were set upon by na- 
tives and strangers and killed. Vil- 
la ni, brother of the above writer, cal- 
culates the prilgrim throng at 1,000, 
000. It lessened in summer, but 
with autumn and winter assumed in- 
credible proportions. Unfortunately, 
several people were crushed to death 
in the crowds, and some Romans, 
forgetful of hospitality, sometimes 
plundered them unmercifully. When 



Cardinal Ceccano tried to curb the 
avarice of these rascally Romans by 
regulations he was set upon and ill- 
used. Alas! the plague broke out 
among the returning pilgrims, and 
many never saw again the home 
they had left! It is interesting to 
learn that among the jubilee pil- 
grims, in that year was St. Brigitta 
of Sweden. 

On April 14, 1387, Pope Urban 
VI. reduced the reccurrence of the 
jubilee to every thirty-third year. 
One was held in 1390 and another 
in 1423, but neither was attended 
by any great concourse of pilgrims. 
But when Nicholas V. held a jubilee 
in 1450 immense crowds flocked to 
Rome, and their pious offerings were 
applied to ecclesiastical and educa- 
tional purposes. Pope Paul II. sub- 
sequently, in 1470, fixed the jubilee 
for every twenty-fifth year,- an ar- 
rangement which still holds good. 
The jubilee in 1500 was largely at- 
tended, and it is notable as being 
the first occasion on which the Holy 
door was opened and closed. 

The jubilee under Clement VII., 
in 1600, was well attended, and so 
impressed were many Protestants at 
the piety of the pilgrims that they 
abandoned their heresy and return- 
ed to the church. Even several 
Turks were converted and baptized 
on this occasion. The Holy Father 
and the cardinals devoted themselves 
with unexampled zeal to the comfort 
and interest of the pilgrims, wash- 
ing their feet and eating for them 
in every way. In 1800 no jubilee 
was o-ranted. owing to the disturbed 
state c>f Europe and to the fact that 
the Pope had just died, his successor 
not coming to Rome until the month 
of July. In 1825, under Pope Leo 
XII , there was a much smaller num- 
ber of pilgrims to the Holy City. 
but, on the other hand, immense 
numbers of the faithful made every 
effort to gain the indulgences grant- 
ed to the whole Catholic world in the 
year following the close of the jubi- 
lee at Rome. The ceremonies of 
this jubilee were witnessed by Car. 
Wiseman, then a sub-deacon; and 
the present Holy Father, Pope Leo 
XIII., took part in them, he being 
then a seminarist at the Jesuit col- 
lege in Rome. During the long pon 



tifficate of Pius IX., owing to poli- 
tical troubles in Italy, no holy year 
was proclaimed, but the jubilee in- 
dulgences were granted to all who 
performed the prescribed coditions. 



LEO'S NINETIETH YEAR. 



The Extraordinary Life and 
Reign of the Great Pontiff. 



From The Freeman's Journal. 

His Holiness, Pope LeoXIIT. was 
born in Carpineto, Italy, on March 2, 
181 ? his father being Colonel Count 
Ludovico Pecci, and his mother, 
Anna Prosperi Busi. He was bap- 
tized March 4, 1810, and his name 
was Joachim Vincent Raphael Louis. 
He had four brothers and two sisters.. 
His family on both sides were an- 
cient and noble, and on his mother's 
side he is related to Rienzi, the great 
orator and agitator. 

He and his brother, who was after- 
ward a Cardinal, were educated at 
the Jesuit College of Viterbo, where 
he spent about five years. After- 
ward he studied seven years at the 
Roman College. He was noted 
throughout his college course for his 
application and talents, gaining ma- 
ny prizes. Joachim Pecci was ad- 
mitted in the College of Nobles in 
1835. He had already received 
minor orders the year previous. He 
was made a sub-deacon and deacon 
in Decemher, and on the last day of 
the year 1837, was ordained a priest 
by Cardinal Odescalchi. 

By the advice of Cardinal Sala, his 
protector and friend, the young priest 
and prelate, Mgr. Pecci resolved to 
devote himself to the service of the 
church in the civil or diplomatic de- 
partment and soon after he was ap- 
pointed as delegate to the Province 
of Benevento. This province was 
the refuge of brigands and criminals 
from the neighboring states and was 
in a deplorable condition, but the 
energy, wisdom and firmness of the 
young delegate, as well as his fear- 
lessness, defeated the brigands and 
some of the nobles who were no bet- 
ter, made the laws respected and 
gave all protection to their persons 
and property. 



MARCH, 10, 1900. 



Pope Gregory praised the young 
delegate for the reforms he had 
carried out and the good results he 
had obtained, and King Ferdinand of 
Naples invited him to visit his court 
and receive public proof of the royal 
esteem. Mgr. Pecci spent three years 
in Benevento, and was appointed de- 
legate to Spoleto, but was changed 
immediately to a more important ap- 
pointment at Perugia. After eight- 
een months lie was appointed Nuncio 
to Brussels, and, on January 28, 1843 
he was consecrated bishop, having 
the title of Archbishop of Damietta. 

The same fearlessness and sense 
of justice which made him so suc- 
cessful in Beiievento was displayed 
as Nuncio at Brussels, and gave 
strength to the Bishops and people 
against the attempts of the govern- 
ment, controlled and influenced by 
the enimies of religion. He remain- 
ed in Belgium three vears, and was 
then appointed archbishop of Peru- 
o-ia. The Cardinal Archbishop of 
Mechlin expressed his eternal grati- 
tude to him in a letter full of love 
and praise, and King Leopold con- 
ferred on him the grand corden of 
the Order of Leopold and wrote a 
letter full of praise and recomend- 
ing Mgr. Pecci in the highest terms 
to Pope Gregory XVI. 

Mgr. Pecci did not return immedi- 
ately to Italy, but made a tour of 
Germany, Austria and England, ma- 
king the acquaintance of Cardinal 
Wiseman in London and being pre- 
sented to Queen Victoria. He spent 
three weeks in Paris and returned to 
Rome to find Gregory XVI. dead 
and the members of the Sacred Col- 
lege assembled for the election of 
his successor, who took the name of 
Pius IX. Mgr. Pecci was created Car- 
dinal in Petto on the 19th of Janua- 
ry, 1846, but did not receive the 
robe until December 19, 1853. Mgr. 
Pecci's term of office was very 
stormy, because he was brought face 
to face with revolution in 1849 and 
again in 1860. His whole carreer at 
Perugia was that of a holy bishop, 
full of zeal for the glory of God and 
the salvation of souls. Many reforms 
were made and many improvements 
were carried out. He remained at 
Perugia thirty-two years, and was 
then appointed by Pious IX. as Ca- 
merlengo on the 21st of September, 
1877. 

The duties of the Camerlengo are 
to manage the property of the Church, 
to keep watch over the doings of the 
city magistrates, to provide for the 
safety of the State, to keep up the 
military forces of the Holy See, to be 



ready for war and maintain peace, 
to have special regard to finances, 
which is the sinew of all public affairs. 
He is appointed for life. On the 7th 
of February 1878, Pius IX died and 
the Camerlengo went, to verify the 
death. Touching the forehead of 
the dead Pope he called three times, 
'•John! John! John!" then turning to 
those present, made the formal an- 
nouncement. The Pope is dead. 1 ' 
The fisherman's ring was removed 
from the finger of Pius and given to 
Cardinal Pecci, who then was in 
control of every department in the 
Church until the conclave on the 
20th of February, when he was 
chosen to be the Vicar of Christ on 
earth and head of the Church He 
chose the title of Leo XIII. because 
he venerated the memory of Leo XI I. 

The pontificate of Leo XIII is not 
only one of the longest in the history 
of the Papacy, but also one of the 
most glorious. Of the 262 Pontiffs 
who preceded Leo XIII. only seven 
had occupied the Chair of Peter for 
twenty-one years. They are: St. Pe- 
ter (29-67) who reigned 38 years: 
St. Leo the Great (440-461), 21 
years; Adrian I, 771-795, 23 years: 
Alexander III. 1159-1181, 22 years: 
Pius VI. 1775- 1799, 24 years: Pius 
VII. 1800-1823, 23 years, and Pius 
IX. 1846-1877, 31 years. 

During his reign His Holiness Leo 
XIII. created 117 Cardinals and 
established or re-organized the heirar- 
chyof Scotland, Japan, the East In- 
dies, Bosnia, Erzegovina and in E- 
gypt for the Copts. Other notable 
facts showing marvelous growth of 
the Church during the past twenty- 
two years are: The erection of 2 
Patriachal sees, the creation of 13 
Archiepiscopal sees, the raising of 17 
Episcopal to Archiepiscopal sees, the 
erection of 100 Episcopal sees, the 
establishment of 2 Apostolic Dele- 
gations 49 Vicariates Apostolic and 
30 Prefectures Apostolic and the 
making of 11 Vicariates Apostolic 
from Prefectures already established. 

At the close of the nineteenth cen- 
tury the Catholic population of the 
world is nearly 300,000,000. This 
wonderful progress of the Catholic 
Church.as everybody knows, has been 
made in the face of the most insu- 
perable difficulties. While every 
"sect," creed and '-religion" has been 
torn to pieces by intestinal wrangles 
and divisions, the Church established 
by Christ has been going quietly on 
with her work and accoplishing the 
most wonderful things in spite of the 
oft-repeated assaults of the most 
powerful enemies, and on the eve of 



the twentieth century, as a Protest- 
ant writer recently put it, "she is 
still the most wonderful fact in the 
world." 



ST. PAUL, MARCH 6, 1900. 
Rev. Jerome Hunt O. S. B. 
Fort ToLten N. 1). 

Dear Father. 

Please find 
enclosed one dollar, my subscription 
for the Eyanpaha. 1 have put off 
sending it from week to week, think- 
ing, 1 would have something for the 
paper, but I must send it without. 
I know it takes mazaska to buy pa- 
per and ink and pay help. I hope 
the Indians are doing better toward 
supporting the Eyanpaha. How are 
you this winter, are you in good 
health? I hope the dear Sisters are 
well, are they all right? 

Is the reservation going to be 
thrown open? I saw in a paper the 
White people had gotten up a peti- 
tion to that effect, and that Senator 
Hansbrough promised to present it to 
Congress. I also saw an item from a 
Fargo paper stating that the Stand- 
ing Rock Indians did not want the 
Santees sent there, there was no land 
to spare. Whatever they do I hope 
the Totten people will cling to their 
homes. Is it not sad to see the poor 
things treated as if they had no rights 
at all? But, they will persist in do- 
ing so many things they should not 
do. Things that make them worth- 
less in the eyes of the White peo- 
ple. Things their good friends told 
them would result evil to them, vet 
they go on and do it. 

How they listen to make believe 
friends who would take every foot 
of land from them and drive them 
from their homes and the graves of 
their loved ones. Alas! Alas! 

When I think of the poor people 
that have to suffer for the mistakes 
of the foolish ones my heart bleeds 
for them. Mr. Cramsie often told 
them if they wanted to keep their land 
they must go on in the right way. 
At a council he said. '-If you take 
up your Indian ways again in twen- 
ty years some one standing on the 
top of Sully's Hill will look over the 
reservation but will look in vain for 
the Indian as an Indian, for the 
White man will have taken it from 
you. Your reservation isthegarden 
spot of N. Dakota, and the Whites, 
are looking at it lii<e so many hun- 
gry wolves at a sheep fold. But if 
you go on as you are now and try to 
do even a little better each year, that 
man will see the Indian homes of 



respectable self-supporting men, men 
as respectable as their white neigh- 
bor, remember my words, I may not 
be alive then but what 1 tell you 
is true." it is about eleven years 
since then. The whites are trying 
to get them away even sooner. 1 
must not tire you with this, but i 
feel you must care too. 

I hope I am not late in wishing 
you a Happy New Year and all the 
blessings the Holy Year can give. 
Very respectfully 

Mary Jane Cjbamsie.
